Books, books, books

I cannot stress just how much I love reading, what I don't like however is paying full price for the latest bestseller to hit the bookshop shelves, especially when there are so many unwanted books crying out for a good home and an equally good read growing dusty in secondhand bookshops and charity shops everywhere.

This week, I've treated myself to some classics which I've always been meaning to read - Treasure Island, Around The World in 80 Days and The Jungle Book - all 30p a piece. As well as Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake for the startlingly expensive, ahem, price of 50p.

If only time could be bought at a bargain price, I might find enough to actually read them.
